Noting makes the Glen Beck's of the world happier than black boogeymen. Take, for instance, the curious case of the Fox News obsession with the New Black Panthers. Would they care about this "story" if it didn't advance their narrative that Barack Obama gives preference to blacks over whites? Yeah, we thought not, too.

The nice thing about Beck is that he makes it so easy to realize how right our side is.

Denzel wins Tonys. Halle Berry and Sam Jax hitting the stage. Will and Jada in "Streetcar"? May not be the "Great White Way" for long.

Well, let's not hope it gets this black.


Blacks and the Tea Party (BTEAP) .29 -.2 -40.82%

We gave the NAACP some grief for their resolution, but the thing is, they're right. The core sentiment that drives the Tea Party is race. Not taxes (cause they're not higher -- even though they should be). Not deficits. They "want their country back"... from the black guy.

Here at the Index we wonder what exactly the NAACP thought they were going to get out of going out of their way to "officially" label the Tea Party movement racist other than strengthen the resolve of the group and weaken the NAACP's own credibilit-- what's that?... CNN's doing a piece on both groups. Oh. Now I get it.

Wow. Back-to-back NAACP posts. Can they make it a three-peat?

Kudos to First Lady Michelle Obama for daring the NAACP to move beyond the slavery, segregation and discrimination narrative and focus more on issues like obesity that are ravaging the black community.

The View is under fire for a recent segment of the show where Sherri Shepherd and D.L. Hughley alleged that the high rates of HIV in the African-American community can be attributed to "the Down Low" phenomena -- which not only seems wrong, but irresponsible in that it points blame and takes accountability out of the hands of everyone in the community.

Must we point out the whole "DL" irony here?*


Paris Barclay

The Emmy nominations last week were, no surprise, glaringly whitewashed so it's nice to see the director get a nomination.


Jesse Jackson

So now we know how the Reverend feels about the whole LeBron thing. Phew. Good thing nothing too important is happening in Oakland or anything.

*I guess we do. We are not insinuating that D.L. Hughley is in the closet. Only that his initials match that of afore mentioned controversial phenomenon.

Well, look who's back. And he ain't got nothing on Mel Gibson in the anti-Semitism front. Ugly. Just ugly.

He even hisses during the speech. I kid you not.
